Sword of Surtur

The second prose novel in Marvel and with Aconyte BooksLEGENDS OF ASGARD line, The Sword of Surtur, will kickstart 2021 with an epic tale.

In The Sword of Surtur, C. L. Werner explores the story of one of Odin's greatest heroes  — Tyr! In this fantasy novel, available on January 5, 2021, Tyr, the God of War and elder brother of Thor, embarks on a quest to reclaim his glory and seal his place at Odin’s side.

Spurred on by loyal young Bjorn Wolfbane and the bewitching Lorelai, the trio set out to steal a sliver of Twilight, the sword of the fire giant Surtur, who will one day bring about Ragnarok and destroy Asgard. But the fiery realm of Muspelheim is fraught with volcanic trolls, lava Kraken, and Surtur’s brood of murderous warriors. Tyr must overcome both his own feelings and the motives of his allies, or risk triggering the apocalypse and cursing his name forever.

The Sword of Surtur

As part of the LEGENDS OF ASGARD line, which is set in the legendary realm of Asgard and rich in Norse-inspired mythology, The Sword of Surtur follows the release of The Head of Mimir, another fantastical story that celebrates heroism, adventure, fate, honor, and myth. Raise a flagon of ale and enjoy tales of the extraordinary exploits of heroes and heroines from the Ten Realms.

The Sword of Surtur will be available in trade paperback, ebook and audiobook formats, available at bookshops and online retailers next month on January 5, 2021. Interested in learning more about this prose novel? Read a chat with author C. L. Werner here!
